I Wanna Marry A Lighthouse Keeper is from a series of works relating to music heard in the second half of the 1960s. The title comes from a bubble-gum song embedded in the Stanley Kubrick film Clockwork Orange. The song is by Erika Eigen, and at only one minute four seconds has an odd and annoying memorability.

I wanna marry a lighthouse keeper and keep him company
I wanna marry a lighthouse keeper and live by the side of the sea
I'll polish his lamp by the light of day
So ships at night can find their way
I wanna marry a lighthouse keeper, won't that be okay?

We'll take walks along the moonlit bay,
Maybe find a treasure too,
I'd love living in a lighthouse, how about you?
I dream 'bout living in a lighthouse, every single day
I dream of living in a lighthouse, a white one by the bay

So if you wanna dreams come through, you'll be a lighthouse keeper too
We could living in a lighthouse, a white one by the bay
Won't that be okay
